Wow! I don't think they have made enough stocking on this planet that could contain all the gifts you got each other! You can see how much fun people had giving as well as receiving! Grin

took me way too long to post these pictures! lol and there are a lot of them cause i'm bad at taking pictures of lots of things at once! From queenninjamonkey:

really cute gingrebread ornaments (unfortunately all but 3 broke but the surviving ones made it on the tree),  4 loofa soaps in two different scents (which my house mate already claimed two of), and bubble bath in a cute gingerbread man

tons of clay (which I never had crafted with but will now  Grin), cute note cards, a truffle bar, really cute sushi erasers (which i want to make into earings or something like that cause they are way too cute to use as erasers), and almond cookie brown sugar scrub (which has already started being used)

tons of candy at the bottom of my bag

book safe with measureing tape bracelets, knitting magazine, and mexican folk art coloring book

sugar skull scarf (which i wouldn't have been able to tell was a first time sewing project if you hadn't said anything), really cute sugar skull fabric *squee*

various jewlry and a jar of whimseys

magnets, jack skellington ornaments (which will be hung year round in my room), tacks, and a cupcake (my house mate wanted me to ask if this was hand made, and if so if you could tell us how cause we heart cupcakes in my household)

and my gift:

sally from the night mare before xmas wall hanging, also in this picture a really awesome mirror and a decoupage notebook

Here's my haul from theballandskein!!  This actually did end up being all I got to open for Christmas, so I'm super grateful.

Fabric coasters (which I really needed, so thank you!), a crocheted wash cloth, two bars of the most delicious smelling soap, and some bath salts, leg warmers, and a head band and wrist cuff made from ties!

A GORGEOUS beaded cami she found for me, a space cleansing kit, two pairs of hair pins (you can't really see, but the lighter pair has a picture of a snowman threatening another snowman with a hair dryer!) and a fabric covered pin (I think it's part of a skull? I love it).

YARN!!!!!!  The three on the right are hemp.  I think the other two are her own home spun.  It's all so beautiful and it feels wonderful.  I can't wait to use it, but I'll probably put it on the shelf for awhile like I do with all of my special yarn so I can stare at it and admire it and just be happy to own it until the perfect project for it comes along.  Does anyone else have yarn proudly displayed on their living room shelves, separate from their stash yarn?

A scarf!  It's pink leopard print striped with black with a sequined martini glass on one end.  This is so perfect for me!  I've been on a major scarf kick lately and this one is bright, sparkly, and animal print.  As I said, perfect!

A felted crocheted hat, which is going to be so warm!  I will definitely get a lot of use out of this, as this has been one of the coldest winters I can remember.  It was -55C one morning in the town where my s.o. lives.  GROSS.

A felted crocheted bag with a tie for a strap!  It has cool little button embellishments sewn on.

As if this wasn't enough, she also sent me some strawberry licorice (Not pictured because I've been eating it the whole time I was taking pics and typing this!) and for my big present she got me a copy of The Happy Hooker!!  She also wrapped some of the gifts in big pieces of fabric...  One is this shiny Christmas plaid which it the perfect size to be a table cloth for my coffee table (it's already on and it looks soooo good) and there was also a nice big piece of animal print fabric!

Thank you so much for being such an awesome and generous partner!  You certainly made my Christmas brighter.

Here are the lovely things ZombieCazz sent to me! I am so grateful, she really spoilt me and I love everything!

Here is my big present, a big slouchy mustard yellow cowl:

And matching mittens! These are so warm, and so cute! My picture doesn't do them justice at all, they are the same colour as the cowl.

And all the rest of the wonder-haul:

Some beautifully embroidered napkins:

Mouse and spider toys for my cat:

A lovely cabled tea pouch, with loads of extra tasty smelling tea:

A fun christmas teddy oven glove:

Felt and embroidered party rings (cookies) for the tree, although these will definately be up all year round in my kitchen:

Some absolutely amazing crocheted snowflakes:

And, my favourite, a felt moustache straight from my wists:

Thank you so much Zombiecazz! You are AMAZING!

... with a great cardboard bottom covered too...

I forgot to tell you, the bottom is made out of a plastic template sheet, so it should be ok to wash it.
